View of the upper cliff at Leaz.


This limestone crag is found near the town of Léaz overlooking the Rhône river. It has somewhere around 50 climbs ranging in grade from very easy to about 5.12. The popular climbs tend to be highly polished rendering them a bit harder than they may have been initially.

Getting There 

Take the national road 206 until you arrive in Léaz. Take the main road into Leaz and pass the church. When the main road ends continue on a gravel road until you come to a parking lot overlooking the Rhone. To get to the cliffs from here you can follow the path up the hill (past some ruins with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top) and then down to the base of the cliffs.
